Can we expect more downtime?
We felt a bit safer with the trialserver as backup,

If our ordinary went down again it was just to rename trialserver
and put Coral on again.

We get answer about
recent lag and connection issues is due to Internet servers rerouting.
network routing changing are taking place in the UK systems in which all
UK – Europe connections are separated from other connections to increase
performance. This is likely to take several weeks, however, there is
currently a temporary system in place which when becoming overloaded
will result in your server pinging higher than usual. Once traffic is
rerouted as it will be for the next couple of weeks things should

Some Bad News: On
17/10/04 we played TC in a scrim on Wake and Bocage. Though The skies
were ruled by the BFA during the Match, we lost 3-1. It was a good
performance by the team considering Coral Sea wasn't allowed and many of
us haven't played Bocage much. Congratulations to BFA Tump for the
highest BFA Score during the match and also to BFA.I Davido having a
very good Performance in his first showing for the BFA.
BFA are proud to
announce the launch of our own server, Totally BF Home of the BFA @
220.127.116.11:14567 Please come along and enjoy playing with other
people who love this game
Both good and bad
news today, firstly I wish to congratulate one of our members on turning
28, phew what an age, at the moment he's saddled up on some motorbike
burning rubber round Europe. So we'll see him in a few weeks time.
Sadly, the bad news is one of the original members of BFA has decided to
part ranks, although he won't be leaving us completely. yes BFA are
proud to announce Knipex (Aka Newbie-Killer) our very own hardware nerd
to help out on all those little ailments within your computers.
Sometimes news just
doesn't happen so we gotta make it for ourselves. Talking about making
young Tump spent his pocket money and hired an expert propaganda artist
take a look at the efforts.
Friday 4th June
I have noticed alot
of people complaining about beeing kicked by Punkbuster lately and BFA
Member OOR WULLIE has come up with a solution. I present it here
(unedited) for your information.
Guys,I was bein
booted more and more frequently byunkbuster and bein banned for 2 mins.
it really pissed me off bigtime. I went to our IRC channel where m3lroid
and <sas> executioner told me what was up, cheers guys. It seems that
punkbuster in some cases will not update automatically. If same is
happening 2 you this is what I done..
Then click BF1942 in the latest PB versions box
Then click on Download beside software updates.
The click on PBWEB
I tried the "pbweb.exe" first but it never worked for me so then I saved
the pbweb.zip to my PB file, then opened it from there. You have to be
online when running the zipfile. If any1 else has done this or has an
easier way pls post, I have just spoke too OOGIE and he was havin same
prob so there must be more out there now gettin hit with same issue. ma
fekkin fingers are sair noo typin this so I hope it has helped some1.
Monday 17th May
There has been no
news for a while as I have been in the middle of a PC upgrade. To make
up for it I decided to share my experiences in watercooling.
New look forums
As some of you may
have noticed we have been doing some work on skinning the forums today
but we are now finished. Let me know what you all think and let me know
if you have any problems. (Screen shots help)

Yes people we have

long suffering missus for creating this work of art. Next job is to try
and rework the forums. Anyone familiar with phpBB and skinning please
let me know.

Big match report
written by our very own Tump.
Result of the big
match: (newbie) 10 - 5 (tump)
Yes people, the long awaited clash of
goliath and david took place. Sean arranged a server for us, thanks for
that sean and [ars]. After Tump had some difficulties with his machine
he finally joined the game, and the battle was on.
It started well with Newbie
shooting me right in my engine. The crowd was excited about the
spectacular start and Tump requested to be silent as in tennis and
removed them from the stand :P. And it was true, Tump got newbie back:
1-1.Then something terrible happened: Tump messed up with pressing the
wrong cam button, he kept looking backward instead of getting back in
the cockpit and was not able to recover from this. He hit the hill in
the middle *shame*. 2-1 for newbie. Newbie had no mercy and while Tump
was still stunned about what happened he got shot again: 3-1. Tump woke
up and realised it was for real, after a failed move around the hill by
newbie tump made him pay for that! 3-2
Then in a one of the most dizzy
circling moves ever Tump decided to mess up the keys again and made a
visit to Davey Jones Locker: 4-2. Then in the 7th round already Tump
made a bad mistake in a move and newbie shot him literally against the
hill, Tump ate the dirt again. 6-2. Then Tump made a little comeback by
shooting newbie down, and later on steered his wreck in Newbie's cockpit
as u can see on Sean screen-shot. But unfortunately Tump's little key
pressing problem was not over yet and once more he took a swim and once
again he made a big bang with the middle hill. Newbie only once more got
shot, and also only once more shot Tump down.
I must say without my stupidity of
pressing wrong buttons this fight was good. We were still strong
opponents and a rematch is guaranteed! So final score 10-5 and without
tumps little crashing it was 6-5. (6-4 if you remove my little suicide
move) Also the picking on each other has now ended..... so other
members, watch out cause were seeking new victims ;).

Watercoolers of the world unite. OK a bit much but watercooling is
becoming more and more of a main stream product. Today's processors just
put out too much heat. Air cooling can cope but the resulting noise is
forcing more and more consumers to look for alternatives. Well good news
boys and girls. The latest UK watercooling specialists have relaunched
with some new product ranges.
still carry the sexy Aqua Computer gear but now also carry products from
nexXxos, Cape and others. They have also launched a brand new
to help newcomers and experts alike.

New flagship graphics card from
For all you gaming fanatics
reviews have appeared of ATI's latest flagship graphics card. The XT800
is their answer to Nvidia's Geforce 6800 but this one does not require
extreme cooling, 2 secondary power inputs nor does it take a PCI slot.
Looks like ATI is here to stay boys and girls. (and my 9800pro suddenly
lost its shine.) read more
and in all the usual spots.
AMD out sell Intel.
That's right boys and girls the
underdog is growing teeth. AMD take over.... Ok so its only in a week
but still its a first. Personally I'm a big fan of AMD and have been
using their processors for a number of years. The AMD 64 seems to have
increased their share of the high end CPU market and competition is good
for you and me the consumer. How long before we see Dell selling AMD
systems ?? (OK so they will already build AMD systems for their
corporate customers but not for the regular Joe.) read more
Sunday 2nd May 2004
To all those who followed the
Zanth91 saga unfold on the forums we offer an apology. This matter has
now been resolved and we hope that it can be put behind us.

Today newbie killer got him PC
back in action in readiness for the upcoming duel with Tump. BUT young
Tump is nowhere to be seen. Has he chickened out ?? Has he come to his
senses ?? Only time will tell.
Sunday 25th April 2004
Today is a sad day for all BF1942
players and gamers in general. A member of Arsclan (an American based
bf1942 clan) Lone Wolf X1X died today at his own hands. We offer our
sincere condolences to his family and friends and hope that it serves as
a reminder to us all that there is another way. Condolences can be

TROUBLE IN BFA RANKS
As a result of the trauma caused
by AWOL's decision to leave BFA. Tump (aka Stump) recently declared his
undying love for AWOL. Newbie Killer rightly pointed out that a
relationship would never be possible resulting in Tump declaring his
love for Newbie. Newbie Killers rejection proved too much for poor young
Tump and he has asked for an opportunity to restore his honour. A duel
has been proposed between these two BFA members. The Veteran and vastly
superior pilot Newbie Killer V's the young upstart Tump in the skies
over the pacific.
Certain destruction for young Tump
you may think but past BFA member (and traitor) Mini (aka -M3lroid- )
(son of BFA member Molk) decided to back young Tump and launched a
savage unprovoked attack on Newbies girlfriend. Will this result in the
defeat of young Tump and Mini at the hands of Newbie, will it result in
escalating friction within the ranks of BFA. Will older heads (aka Tumps
mom and Molk) convince the youngsters of the futility of a fight with a
clearly superior opponent !!! Stay tuned and read on

BFA victorious against -=SOAR=-
Yesterday BFA emerged Victorious
from their recent WAR with -=SOAR=-. A good fight and a surprising
result on Coral Sea (We failed to sink then as axis).
For those interested our resident
WAR correspondent Flemmy makes his report

Request for help !!!!!!!!!!
We really need to do some work on
the main site guys and Im pretty busy at the moment.
Have a look at my request for help
This site belongs to all of us.
Its the first thing visitors see so lets make it something to be proud
Tuesday 6th April 2004
Name change: Mini Bald has
now reinvented himself as Archibald. The king is dead long live the
On a side note. Lex has been seen
to beg for a shortened period as a recruit. Didn't anyone tell him about
custom ranks ???? Speaking of which rumour has it that I'm in a good
mood and removed Mini's (mini molk not mini bald) custom title. Now lets
see can he play nice this time.
Monday 5th April
Today is a sad day
here at BFA. First Lex turns up, then I get to listen to Tump on IRC for
2 hours, and now AWOL has announced his decision to retire from BFA......
Yes its true AWOL is leaving us. He has decided that his "career" (does
anyone actually know what he does for a living anyway) has to take
priority over games for a while. Hopefully this is more a temporary
leave of absence than a retirement and we shall see him return to the
fold. In the mean time best of luck AWOL and all I got to say is you
really need to look at your priorities in life.
Monday 5th April
A stranger has
appeared on the forums. Lex has found us (What I want to know is who
gave him the URL ) and decided to apply for membership. Our exaulted
leader had decreed that he be allowed to wear the coveted BFA-r tag. We
look forward with interest to see if he survives the initiation period.
Blood shall run red I tell ya... red.
Due to some
comments regarding popularity contests (and Armless coming to his
senses) we have decided to forego the democratic elections (this is
after all and dictatorship) and Armless has decreed that the new
moderators shall be Armless AWOL and Blue steel boy (aka Red Dawn) All
bow to your new overlords.
Looks like we have
a new fully fledged member. OOR WULLIE our resident Scottish comedian
had completed his initiaton rite and lost his -r. (someone mentioned a
toilet brush and paint thinners but I think it was in jest ... Well I
hope it was ..) Congrats OOr and welcome aboard.
Nominations are now
in so lets the voting phase start. Three moderators need to be elected
between now and next Saturday. Due to the fact that I was away and hence
slow to grant permissions on forums I will extend the nomination
deadline until Monday midnight. Any nominations received before then
will be added to list. Anyone who wishes to make a private nomination
can mail me at email@example.com or pm me from the forums. All
votes are private and confidential. I will be able to monitor IP
addresses to ensure that each person votes only once.
On a side note:
Could someone please make me a nice Admin Sig and avatar for the
forums.. In return I can grant you a nice custom rank.
The forums are now
set up and should be working. Please register as soon as possible so I
can setup you user privileges. (I am going away on Sunday afternoon and
will not be back until late on Friday). We also need to elect 3
moderators and I have opened and thread for nominations. The closing
date for Nominations is next Saturday and you will not be able to make a
nomination unless you have member privileges...... REGISTER NOW........
Welcome to the
Launch of Ver. 2.0 of Bfarrows.com. Hosting transfer has been completed
and we hope to the have the forums up and running ASAP. You will see
some weirdness going on for a while as we attempt to iron out the bugs,
play with the layout and generally get it up and running. I hope this
will not affect your use of the site.
Ok version 1 of
bfarrows.com isn't working too well. This site will be going down
tomorrow to allow us to switch to a new host and hopefully then we will
be in a position to provide you with working forums.
Please bear with us
until we launch BFArrows.com Ver.2
